The “They say” piece walks through the best way to bring about a proper historical context. A point argued was to utilize the argument of the other side in your favor, but to always keep an active goal in this conscious perspective.
Strong briefly discusses two of the supposed great humanistic needs: spiritual Christianity and civil liberty. He then proceeds to explain how this is why the Anglo-Saxon is respected, because of this civil liberty “granted” to the white man. He also so much as to portray other races as having to conform to the anglo-norm in order to preserve their integrity in any amount of competition.
Part of “They Say” was proper sourcing. “The Anglo-Saxon…” was framed to only allow the point of view of Anglo-superiority where “Wild People in Wild Lands,” for the better part, breaks down into an explanation behind the racial superiority complex.

This shines a light on the predatory tendencies of the European mindset, as there is the notion of imperialism ingrained in the idea of anything that is different, deeming it exotic. Pike discussed this is sex, many times those with the European mindset see those of other races as sexually “exotic”. We also see this in the linguistic sense titling other races as “brute beasts,” creating a historical bias
